Dear Governor Davis, Senators Boxer and Feinstein, fellow citizens,
President Bush has just announced on live television (3:00pm E.S.T., October 26th, 2001) that: "It is in our national interest to develop safe nuclear power".
There is no such thing. Certainly not our current Boiling Water Reactors, with their Spent Fuel Pools dangerously above ground and barely protected from even a Cessna, let alone a 757. Certainly not our current Pressurized Water Reactors, with their embrittled metals (also found in BWRs) and overloaded SFPs. Certainly not Pebble Bed Reactors which won't even have a containment dome.
Renewable energy is the ticket to freedom. Wind, wave, tide, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric, biomass -- those sorts of things. Boeing has already announced a 50% cut in commercial airplane production -- why not invest in wind power instead, and have Boeing build the blades? General Electric can build the turbines. Industrialize America to build renewable energy systems and we can shut down the reactors we've got, and we certainly won't need any more nuclear reactors.
Please tell our president to get realistic about the threats to America AND the solutions.
